Will we ever get off the yo-yo diet hamster wheel? There's a constant struggle to either lose or maintain a specific weight, especially in the Garden State. We care about our looks, okay? Sue us.

For so many, the path to weight loss is a complicated one. What works for your friends won't necessarily work for you. That kind of trial and error can take a toll on your nerves after a while. It can even potentially harm your mental health.

Of course, it's more about maintaining a healthy lifestyle than it is about seeing a specific number on the scale. Still, even "getting healthy" takes work.


What is Ozempic?

There is a medication called Ozempic, or semaglutide, which is used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Ozempic belongs to a class of medications known as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. These drugs work by mimicking the action of a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1, which helps to regulate blood sugar levels.

While Ozempic is primarily used to manage blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes, it has also been shown to have additional benefits such as weight loss. Some individuals may experience weight loss as a side effect of taking Ozempic. People have reported shedding pounds and pounds of weight while following this treatment.

Ozempic is available in injectable form, typically administered once a week. It is prescribed by healthcare professionals and should be used according to their instructions.
